Update Tuesday morning: Canada becomes the 1st country that leaves the Kyoto protocol. Congratulations to Canucks! An unhinged Ms Christiana Figueres, the UNFCCC's boss personally trained and authorized by Al Gore in his training camps (she memorized An Inconvenient Truth slide show), immediately sent a legally nonsensical spam e-mail to Canada, claiming that Canada has no right to stop Kyoto policies whether it's a Kyoto signatory or not.The delegates of the insane Durban climate conference have blackmailed each other and kept on negotiating for at least 36 extra hours. Finally, many of the delegates were so tired and so scared of the idea that their intimate recreational activities in Durban would be published by their even more alarmist counterparts that almost everyone okayed a sick deal:
The parasites have also agreed with a $100 billion fund by 2020 which is not a big deal because it may approximately cover the vacations of these shameless climatic parasites and their employees in the individual countries. The global annual damages caused by the climate fearmongers are comparable to a trillion of dollars.
So I would say that America is a relatively big winner. It seems very likely to me – well, at least I hope it is likely – that by 2020, pretty much no person living outside a psychiatric asylum will continue to talk climate hysteria. Whether the agreement about the Kyoto extension will be undone by 2020 is an open question.
During the 14 years of its life (so far), the Kyoto protocol obviously hasn't improved the climate at all. But it hasn't even reduced the CO2 emissions it planned to reduce. It's a complete failure agreed upon and negotiated by people who are complete failures as well. Nevertheless, the Kyoto has been costly despite its complete failure. At the end, the same CO2 molecules were emitted but the economies were made less efficient to do so, anyway. If we simplify a bit, XY coal power plants were replaced by expensive wind turbines, solar panels, and XY coal power plants to support the first two things.
The mankind is a big loser. The United States of America that are not Kyoto signatories are a relative winner. I won't mention Afghanistan, Andorra, and South Sudan (which also stayed out of Kyoto) because I don't think that similar countries would be visibly hurt by the Kyoto protocol, anyway. Chances are that America will spend the years 2012-2020 under an anti-climate-regulation administration and will benefit out of it.
James Inhofe recently said that he's the last man in Washington who talks about climate change; Inhofe also prematurely celebrated the complete death of the Kyoto process. But Barack Obama himself had to abandon Al Gore's stinky bandwagon after all the GOP candidates did the same thing. Despite its most-leftwing-ever acting president, America turns out to be the most sober major country of the world.
